I usually say that when a recording comes to my studio to be edited and cleaned, I focus my ears on the clarity and intelligibility of the recording, the emotional and technical aspects for distribution, After reviewing each file I always give honest feedback about the quality of the recording and as long as I can I'll suggest techniques to improve the quality of the recordings.

Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring to light the highest quality possible of the recording, my goal is always to enhance the clarity, intelligibility, and quality of the recording.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I start each project by defining my client expectations and getting as much information as possible for each project with an introductory video call with the artist or producer, after the talk I prepare a timeline with the files that we'll need to complete this way client is also fully informed on progress and when to expect the deliverables. VO cleaning is such an amazing challenge every time is different, usually, everything starts by listening to the audio file and identifying the issues and noise types, then the cleaning start solving each issue manually to ensure the highest quality possible, after removing hum noises, background noises, etc, I finalized with a natural EQ pass and Compression. My main 3 steps are: Step 1: Identify what's getting in the way of the dialogue. Step 2 Create a hierarchy of the problems in order of severity. Step 3: Consider the best software process to tackle the problems.
